Marco Reus has been ruled out indefinitely owing to an inflammation on the tendon of his injured adductor muscle. This is terrible news for Dortmund, who were looking forward to their Captain’s return.
Reus picked up the injury in February and hasn’t played a minute of football despite the lockdown break in the months of March, April, and May. Prior to his injury, the German had 12 goals and 7 assists to his name for the 2019/20 campaign.
It was to his ill-fortune that the injury ruled him out for the rest of the season. What’s most shocking about the injury is that Reus even returned to full training in the month of June and looked set for a comeback for the 2020/21 season.
However, the club confirmed that he was not in the best of shape and they obviously do not want to take the risk of prolonging his injury. The club statement read, “Borussia Dortmund will have to contend with the continued absence of Marco Reus. The club captain has suffered an inflammation of the tendon on his already injured adductor muscle. It is not yet known when he will be able to make his return to action.
Reus has worked hard and made progress in recent months, but he still has problems with certain movements. A conservative therapeutic approach is being used to treat the injury.”
